enormous amounts of energy, a megawatt of energy we don't waste is a megawatt of energy you don't have to produce. that's the fastest, cheaps, most job-intensive way. that's even before we get into biomatt, that is eventually going to be the dominant in of the world. >> we have an amazing multiple of subsidy -- and the -- we're going to continue an amazing substitute. the. >> announcer: -- >> we've been subsidizing it for the last 30 years, but michael, let me ask you, you coming from the environmental community and now being a supporter of nuke lard energy, you telling us that's the way to go, aren't you concerned about radiation in our water and air, wildlife and people? and if you can support nuclear energy, why not clean coal like in montana? why not wind power with abundant natural gas or stored pump energy with our lake systems? why just nuclear energy? >> before i start, i just want to acknowledge that i really respect ralph nader and always acknowledged him especially his work in the 1960s for workplace safety, food safety, car safety, but the fact is he's been saying this same
their base or ill ineighting it? >> after four years of me, if they don't know me, they haven't been paying attention? >>> and what does it mean in virginia? on the left, van jones, on the right, newt gingrich. in the crossfire. what message are the voters sending today? and who will listen? tonight on crossfire. >>> welcome to crossfire. i'm van jones on the left. >> i'm newt gingrich on the right. in the crossfire, we're just a full half hour from the closings of the polls on election night. if the pre-election polling turns out to be accurate, there will be two big winners tonight, chris christi and hillary clinton. the fact is the democrats who might win in new york and virginia certainly seem to be ahead, are boast allies of hillary clinton. i think she may have as big a night as chris christi. >> i think that's possibly true. and i think if chris christi has a big night, he should enjoy it because my view is, this is his high watermark. i am happy to have people to help us. in the crossfire, donna brazil along with john bray bender. i want to go to you. you were santorum's guy. are th
the president. >> don't you have to take some responsibility, though? >> they saw to embarrass -- >> we're going to t about it later on. >> fred upton has a bell coming on f in the crossfire tonight, democratic -- and republican representative james langford. let me start, california's about 37,000 people signed up for the california web side. but yesterday the commissioners of insurance indicated that a million californians are receiving notices that their insurance is terminated. doesn't it concern you -- >> certainly i'm glad i'm a california. in california we definitely adopted obama care. let's make this work. we have an insurance commissioner. i actually went into covered california. get what, it's just a dollar different than what i would get in california, unfortunately i'm being forced into d.c.'s exchange, when i didn't know, but that's what obm, or whoever the personnel office decided for us. by the way, the aca, the obama care law actually grandfathered people like that to be able to keep them. it didn't grandfather what companies could charge you for that policy. in the last three y
of aauthenticity, you don't run in a vacuum. if he runs in 2016, democrats will hit him for being against women, but republicans will hit him for giving money to planned parenthood. democrats will say his state was 45th in job creation. this sounds awfully familiar, larry. it's like take us back four years ago, we're at the exact same play. >> those of us who are republican under the republican wing have a problem with republicans like chris christie. good guy, i would certainly prefer him over any democrat that could be tossed up, but has he accepted the architecture of welfare state? or will he by like ted cruz, wanting to attack the welfare state and xwoir individuals in the states? that's our concern. >> it's a full rep table. steve la tourette, also rick tyler, who isn't a christie fan. suns you are our guest host tonight, larry, why don't you ask the question. >> steve, one of my problems with chris christie was during during he asked for funding, i get it, but couldn't he have threat said something like, when i run in 2016, i'm going to make sure i don't federalize disaster relief and th
enormous amounts of energy, a megawatt of energy we don't waste is a megawatt of energy we don't have to produce. and that's the fastest, quickest, cheapest, most job intensive way. retrofitting buildings, homes, more efficient motors and motor vehicles, lighting, air conditioning systems. that's even before we get into biomass, wind power, solar thermal, photoboteic and others that will eventually be the dominant form of energy in the world, wind power. >> isn't eventually, i just looked at a study the other day that said we have something like an amazing multiple of subsidy for solar power today. and the projections over the next ten years we're going to continue an amazing subsidy for solar power. it's always the energy of the future. >> we've been subsidizing nuclear energy for the last 50 years. i don't think there's anybody pure in this. michael, let me ask you, you coming from the environmental community and now being a supporter of nuclear energy? you telling us that's the way to go? aren't you concerned about radiation in our water our air our wildlife and our people? an if y
you know? >> i don't. obviously it's a disappointing roll-out. but you do line that he's owned the problem. he understands the principle of the buck stops here, and anybody who thought the roll-out was going to be smooth and without hitches is not lives in the real world. >> okay, but answer the question, will you run on obama care -- >> i've going to do everything, and i'm not going to run away from the affordable care act. i think this is what we need to strengthen our hospital system. i want to tell you about a friend of mine. he actually died, was resuscitated twice, he's still with us. you know why? he had a cold and didn't have health care. it turned into viral pneumonia, and we almost lost him. here's the good news. yesterday, he lives in california, was able to go on to the california exchange. he was able to find a plan and his family for about $500. are you prepared to tell him the status quo two months ago is what you want to go back to? >> first of all, it's unfortunate that he found himself in thatsh d. you truth is, you show up to any room at any home and by cared
and that would be enough. somehow i don't think he's going to get off that easy. joining us in the crossfire, congressman crowley and ralph reed. this is the reality in today's nbc washington post poll, the president is down 15 points from january when it comes to being a strong leader, he's down 8 points for being honest and trustworthy. most damaging though, 70% of the country believe he's on the wrong track. is 70% of the country wrong? >> i think it's also reflective of where they see their government going. it's not just the president. i think it's the entire congress as well. you have a dysfunctional congress. the republican congress has no vision. it has no agenda for 2014. and i think the president pays some of the price for that. >> these numbers are about the president, though. >> polls go up and down. >> they're not just reflective of the president. they're reflective of what's happening right now in the times. we live in a very unsettling world. and quite frankly, what my republican colleagues continue to do is create more uncertainty. more fiscal cliffs to come, unfortunately, w
tour. >> i want to go in and fix it myself but i don't write code. >> why can some politicians admit they were wrong? >> i take full responsibility for my own actions. >> how profoundly sorry i am. >> while others can't? on the left, stephanie cutter. on the right, kevin madden. in the crossfire, rout marcus who supports obama care and grover norquist who opposes it. is apologizing shrewd politics or just sorry? tonight on "crossfire." >>> welcome to "crossfire." i'm kevin madden on the right. >> and i'm stephanie cutter on the left. we have two great guests in the crossfire tonight. first the president's apology. he's sorry because some americans are losing their insurance plans and their new plans are costing more. he did promise if you liked your plan you can keep it. but the way the law has unfolded doesn't live up to that promise. admittedly i've used that line, too. there's no doubt the administration oversold it. but there are some facts here that can't be ignored. we're talking about roughly 3% of americans who could be paying more, and their old plans aren't even worth the p
, look -- >> don't you think he should learn? >> i think he should and is learning. even jfk, he had his bay of pigs moment. i think the senators know better than to county him out. we have senator ben cardin and senator tim cot. welcome to both of you. now, listen, i am concerned, because i have been watching all this footage from the kennedy era. it seems like there was a time when you had the parties cooperating, working together, now it looks like a big mess, even on something as simple as getting judges approved through the senate. we're going to have to have a nuclear option to get judges approved? what is going on in the senate? >> having a nuclear option is like having obama care 2.0. the fact of the matter is over the last 15 years we've seen only two defeated. so the fact of the matter as it result to getting judges approved, it's happening form the question we really should look at is why can't we find a legislative common ground, lower taxes, p ultimate people back to work and get back to the primary question, which is americans want jobs. >> we will get to that. but, i do ha
, homophobia, could be claimed a locketer room consultly. i don't think that's right. i remember years ago hearing from some that michael vick in dogfighting, that was part of black southern culture. i'm sure at penn state, apparently there was a culture that required you to-day-old and protect joe paterno at all costs. so culture is what we make it. so blaming the locker room is not appropriate, but christine, are you really surprised to hear that trash talk like this, and mean i'm some bullying and hazing goes on? i've been around, you've seen it. >> absolutely. i've been in locker rooms where it's happened to me, covering the washington team in the '80s. i think journalists get -- i think one of the things we're getting from the story is so much we don't know. it will come out, the nfl is investigating that, that's a good thing. i absolutely agree that the locker room is different from the street corner or school yard, but you made a good point that the nose is setting the tone, the nfl's most popular league in the country, certainly or national pastime, 40% of the fans of the nfl are w
of fortifying our relations with asia, china is the area isolated, not us. >> so if the chinese don't back down, to what extent would you be prepared to use military assets or to force our access to the areas the chinese claim are now their own. >> we should be talking to the chinese quietly and privately, but we should also be showing strength at the same time so we're negotiating from a position of strength. seems to me likely that's exactly what the obama administration is doing. >> so i imagine that you would be very proud of the obama administration. they are standing up. we are sticking with our friends in japan. we flew our military jets. are you going to give president obama his first atta boy? >> that's right except, they pretty much continued the bush administration policies. it's tough-minded, old-fashioned. hillary clinton was pretty tough. they're gone now. and i was in japan last week by pure chance. and they were worried, actually about something like this happening. and they would say privately in the meetings, that the policy was pretty good. you don't have much defense forces
unpopular. i don't see a lot of great ideas. how would you stop hillary clinton? i don't think -- >> there's good case studies around a how republicans win in swing or even blue areas. go to wisconsin, the home of progressive politics from the left, and scott walker serving as governor. go to the blue state of arizona, or new mexico -- >> you're not intimidated? you're not impressed? >> of course. she's going to be formidable. she would be a formidable candidate, but there are obvious case studies where republicans do well, and we can learn from that and we should. >> donna, today's democratic party is very different from the one that hillary's husband presided over in the '90s. he was praised for welfare reform, lowering abortion rates. you know, don't ask/don't tell. it's a different party, and even when hillary last ran for president, you were allowed to be a democrat. so is enough change that she's going to have to run as a progressive now? >> no, look, what bill clinton did back in the 1990s was expand the democratic party. the party was no longer a regional party, it became a nationa
to get rid of it? >> i don't think i can control the people. but i had an argument with conservative republicans on the hill today who said why don't we let the whole thing crash. it's their plan, it's their horrible plan. it will be more obvious to people a year from now. those tea party guy, they are going to vote friday to do something they don't really like doing, which is fixing an underlying piece of legislation because they are responsible. and they are getting phone calls from their constituents in arkansas, and saying i am losing my health care insurance. could you at least, while the mess is under way, could you help me for the next year? so they're doing the right thing. some are contrary to their own instincts. so they're behaving responsibility. and i know the serious democrats like you two would applaud them for acting responsibly on friday. >> you're absolutely characterizing it and i would applaud that. we might be seeing for the first time literally, since the beginning of the obama presidency, when meetings were held about how do we keep this guy from ever having a
. but i think tonight we can look at this. and i know you don't want to hear it. i think the biggest story of the actual events of today were terry mcauliffe going from 15 points ahead 10 days ago to almost losing while outspending his opponent by at least 4 to 1. and the only change was obama care. >> well first of all, you can't possibly be falling for this chris christie stunt where he runs the score up by dodging cory booker, wasting $12 million worth of taxpayer money so he doesn't have to run against anybody. basically run unopposed. i could get those numbers if i ran opposed. number one. number two, terry mcauliffe broke the curse. you've never had anybody be able to win the governor's race and say you got your own party in the white house. this is good stuff for us, bad stuff for you guys. we've got other people who will agree with me. in the crossfire tonight, democratic strategist penny lee along with republican strategist john ferry. listen, everybody is jumping up and down and saying chris christie is now the savior, he can get black, he can get last-handed people. he can do an
your promise to your constituents? can you run for reelection if you don't get to 250,000? >> it was 2015, and a stark contrast, under my predecessor, we lost 133 thousand. so i want to make up for those jobs. >> they have to trust you to get reelected? >> by 2015, that's the promise we made. that's why we created a better business climate. we took an unemployment rate right where the state of illinois is right now, and we dropped it down to 6.5%. >> you've faced somewhat similar problems, delaware has lost about 5,000 jobs, though in a terrible national economy. to what extent is part of the challenge just the whoa nature of the obama economy and the degree to which the general -- is not creating the economic growth we would like? >> let's face it, the financial crisis was an unbelievable catastrop catastrophe. we've had many jobs of growth. i think the bigger issue is what is the changed role with the u.s. economy and global economy? that's something we have to make sure that people understand. when i talk to folks in delaware, how we can make businesses more success
. >>> in the crossfire tonight senator bernie sanders and senator john hovan. i think these a very historic vote. i don't think it's a tactic. if you watch the president's press conference, the entire opening is a litany of legislative problems. he doesn't get to the appointments until after he goes through layer after layer of legislative problems, which to me signals he intends to unwind the entire filibuster by the time it's done. doesn't it bother you the institution has suddenly changed toward a house-like institution and one of the great defenders are slowing things down just disappeared? >> it does. but i think the problem began a lot before today. the problem began the day after obama was elected, where the republicans clearly made an unprecedented decision that he will do everything they did in an unprecedented way to make sure he accomplishes as also as he can. reid made the point today, in terms of presidential nominations to the judiciary and to the administration, 168 times since this country was founded, half of those filibusters, that opposition took place since obama was in office. newt
clinic or md anderson, because the centers are excellence are more expensive and therefore don't fit into government-run health care? >> i think you're touching a broader issue about our spending priorities. i happen to believe that investing in research and development trying to understand and get a better handle on cancer, alzheimer's, is a good investment for our country. so i would invest more into these programs and into the nih. i'm not sure that my republican friends agree, but that's what i would do. >> let me go to you. i assume you are not a single payer advocate itches that's a safe assumption. >> i would assume up the private health insures to do the job, right? there have been records say the insurance companies are actually abusing people, blaming obama care, but senting out notices that are false and misleading. basically abusing the law. would you -- >> if those abuses are happening, absolutely we should stop them, but that's not the biggest set of cases out there. the biggest set of cases are the 93,000 folks in louisiana that have gotten truthful legitimate notices
a lack of food, still a lack water and people are dying. people are still dying, people will die who don't need to die. they're going to die of things that if they had antibiotics they couldizely be cured of. we have an example of that this evening. you may have seen this picture. it's been seen around the world. it's really stunned a lot of people. a woman in what has remains of a hadn't in tacloban who has no other option but to try to pump air into her husband's body to keep him alive. she's manually been pumping air into his lungs to keep him alive. he essentially has a broken leg. but an infection has set in because he wasn't seen by doctors because there weren't doctors who could see him. there weren't surgeons who could operate on him. there weren't antibiotics that could actually stop the infection. so antibiotics that would cost a few cents were not available. and we're not talking about the first day after the storm or the second day, we're talking the third and the fourth and the fifth and the sixth day ivan watson is joining us from tacloban with an update on what has happene
of the entire insurance system for the country? >> look, i don't even know where to begin with that opening. first of all, dictator? you know last week if he's not taking responsibility, when he takes responsibility he's a dictator. that doesn't make sense. he mae as well be barack pinata. whatever he does, you guy -- him. >> we have recall grijalva, and republican steve -- i know you -- before we get into that, the president didn't just say he's getting picked on for saying. he also said i feel deeply responsible. he said it's on me. he said i've got to work to win back credibility. he said i'm not a perfect president. i'm going to get it fixed. this is the kind of leadership you've been wanting. aren't you produce of the president today? >> what i want the president to do is admit this law doesn't work and work with republicans. look, van, if you want good policy, you have to work with republicans and democrats. he didn't want to do that the first time. at the law is not working now. he's acknowledging it, just not admitting it's unworkable. >> congressman, the law is working right now. >
difficult to de-escalate. we just don't have the kinds of plans that would allow us to de-escalate. with korea japan, taiwan, russia, the united states, all snooping around in the area, it becomes a crowded flight zone and maritime zone. therefore, the possibility for miscalculation is very real. >> general marks, did the u.s. do the right thing? >> they absolutely did. if the united states had not challenged this unilateral declaration of a change, a new standard would have been said and china would have declared a form of success. i think they challenged it very veld the b-52 was not armed. it's not going to penetrate into chinese beyond that -- it's not going to penetrate into the mainland, but i think it's very, very important. we have always had a large military presence in the region, so the escalation certainly -- the possibility of an escalation is always present, but we've this dance and we've handled it very well and ambassador, you've been a part of that very intimately. we've been able to do this dance pretty effectively. this was an act on the part of the chin
. these are the very things i think the residents of the city of toronto don't want him to do because he's been an embarrassment. >> horribly embarrassing and here i am reporting on this daily. have a question for you about what the mayor is asking you to do daily in that council chamber. respect his privacy and his wife's privacy and his family, all while she is standing beside him in his apology sessions and making bold or comments about what he does to his wife at home. how does anybody reconcile this in toronto? >> we are all disgusted by it. it has reached a tipping point. i believe he has to go into any measures we can to have him removed. cannot do that ourselves. i am there and i believe many from toronto are there. the rest of counsel is not there as they are hiding behind this idea of president. might idea is if you are going to declare president, this is the time to do it because this is a remarkable situation where you've got someone who's admits to crack cocaine, buying drugs, involving guns and gangs. using the most bold language that you can think of in front of his office. what
're going to start with you, sir. i don't understand why people like you are not happen about this deal. first we'll seal 100 billion of their money locked under key, we get a chance to put inspectors on the ground, why is that by itself not a good deal? >> there have been inspectors on the ground for a long time. the question is what they are allowed to see. the problem is with this deal, it's meant to stop this particular regime from acquiring nuclear weapons. i think quite properly, as newt says, the negotiations went along a similar path with north korea. at the end of the day they tested a nuclear weapon, once, twice, three times and are still developing missiles. the iranians will be able to do the same thing here, despite 24 agreement or this joint action plan as it's calling, the iranian programs proceeds toward development and our leverage is diminished. >> is it your view we should have no interim deal, no step that somehow d. president obama has put the most crippling set of sanctions on any country in modern history, and they have gone under sanctions from 200 to 19,000 cent
he was wearing at the time, sort of camouflage clothing is what we're being told. >> we don't know much about paul anthony ciancia, but i suspect pretty soon we'll know a lot. evan perez is our justice reporter. what are you learning, evan? >> wolf, one of the things that the fbi is trying to focus on is to learn what his motivation was, whether or not -- what exactly these rantings that were contained in this letter that were found in the bag that he was carrying, whether there's any significance to that. now, you know, he may have belonged to some groups perhaps, and that's one of the things that the authorities are now following up on, and as deb said, you know, this is -- the firearm is another key here. in california, it's very difficult to get some of these firear firearms, especially they semiautomatics. a lot of them have been banned in california, as have been some of the higher magazines. so those are other things that the authorities are looking at at this hour to try to figure out where he got the firearms? where he got the ammunition and also what he motivation was to
book page. we don't know a lot. he's 23 years old, had gone out to los angeles, don't know how long he had been there for. but again he seemed quite unhappy. he was shot multiple times in the chest as you mentioned and was taken to the ronald reagan ucla hospital. he's described as being in critical condition, anderson. >> deborah, appreciate the update. kyung lah joins us now at l.a.x. >> is there still a huge backup from grounded flights? >> reporter: oh, yeah. it was 5 1/2 hours where nothing was taking off, landing, with the exception of some airplanes right above los angeles. so that's 76,000 passengers that simply had their air travel disappear. so they're here at the airport trying to figure out how to get in or out. then you have the passengers who are normally traveling. so yes, there is absolutely a backlog. it is a huge mess here at los angeles tonight. >> it looks dreadful. how are people handling the delays? what are people saying to you? >> reporter: it's a bit of a mixed bag. peopled in have been very very civil while this was all unfolding. they're trying to be collabor

. this is the view out the window. we couldn't see your view there. why don't you describe to us what it looks like. >> it's very calm now. there's just a lot of fire engines, a lot of -- everything has been cordoned off. it's not as bad as it was before but there's a lot of people looking out. >> christine, i will ask you to try to move your camera one more time. i will ask our viewers to bear with us. you know how slow internet speeds can be. we will try to get you a live picture via christine o'neill's computer camera. if you could try to face it out the window for us. so we have an eyewitness now. you can see the lights of the first responders there. little blurry but i can see the figures all around the pub. just hold it still, that will help us. so tell us what we're seeing there. i can see the flashing lights from some of the first responders. it looks like the pub on the left? >> yeah. pub on the left. >> still dozens of people there. what are the first responders doing? it's a little hard for us to see. are they still taking the injured out of the building? >> no. they must have stopped. w
